PHILOSOPHICAL KNIFE PIECE OF THE DAY:
“The knife is a tool and a weapon. The deciding factor is intent. The same knife can cut a box open full of toys for your children or grandchildren, or it can cut open the neck of an invader into your home trying to harm those same children or grandchildren.”
Kind if a hippie/new-agey piece, but well written.
Knifemaker Walter Sorrells makes a knife in under 2 hours:
He had issues making one in 3 hours on Forged in Fire, but that is TV. This is still legit.
UHM…I’LL PASS: 6 piece Cuisinart knife set for less than $20. They are still probably better than what 40% of Americans have in their kitchen.
FUNNY TO SEE THIS IN A UK NEWSPAPER: Profile of San Francisco Knifemaker Galen Garretson . I hadn’t heard of him personally, but his knives look great and he lists Bob Kramer as his primary influence, so he has good taste.
UK HOPLOPHOBIA: More than 420 knives turned in in North Wales amnesty.
What a waste of steel.
I had one. Did You?
Welcome to Week 2 of my experiment with a running link-dump of content that I don’t have too much to add by way of commentary. If I don’t have at least a full paragraph of original prose to add myself, I hate to bother you all with a dedicated post. That doesn’t mean that I think that an item isn’t going to be of interest to people.
The format is a riff off of Instapundit. The fact is The Blogfather has figured out a way to efficiently share a great deal of content on an ongoing basis – I would be reinventing a less effective wheel to come up with a dramatically different method for what I am trying to accomplish. That said, I am not turning the whole blog into this, just an ongoing series of posts.
I know it was only the first week, but while last week’s post debuted strong, by Day 3 it was down to a couple of dozen views. I tried pinning it to the homepage in the Featured Links, but this only shows up for people viewing the desktop site. It doesn’t show up on mobile. I have some things I would like to bounce off the web-designer, but for now I am going to change things up a little and simply create a new open thread every couple of days as the previous one scrolls off the front page. The previous one will be be linked in the new one for easy navigation:
Otherwise, I am going to try to keep the format the same for the time being. If you didn’t see last week’s thread, please have a look. I tried to share a wide variety of content from news to videos, knifemaking, kitchen tips, and a bit of humor as well. I would love any feedback you have on style, content, or any ideas how to make this the most effective feature it can be. I am hoping that by having a series of links in one post, it will inspire our comments and discussion. It will help me know what areas and topics are generating the most interest.
OK, on to our first crop of links:
BLADE HQ SHARES THE LATEST FROM Chris Reeve Knives:
Chris has retired from CRK, but the Legacy lives on.
COOL CABLE DAMASCUS VIDEO:
DAVID ALREADY WROTE ABOUT JHO’s VERSION: Metorite Co.’s Fidget Spinner Knife.
Neither is as good as BLADE HQ’s Exacto Spinner.
A Bakersfield native and former NFL linebacker, Anthony McClanahan is considered the primary suspect in connection to the death of his wife.

Officials said the apparent cause of death was several knife wounds to her throat.
Olsen stated Anthony McClanahan was recently arrested on unrelated child kidnapping and being a fugitive from justice.
That’s it for the moment. Please leave any feedback in the Comment Section. I want to make this a valuable part of the TTAK experience and could use your help.
Oh, and let us know if you had one of the 1980’s survival knives. Do you still?
